    On this episode of FreightWaves Insiders, Dooner catches up with Port X Logistics founder Brian Kempisty to talk about the drayage market, building a company and establishing an aspirational freight brand.

    BK spent most of his childhood working on a farm and raising dairy cows. It was evident early on that he had a tremendously competitive spirit, as he wanted to win every cattle show he entered. Once in college, he became laser-focused on business and started several companies in his 20s. Port X, its people and its customers are his true passion.

    When he does take a moment away from Port X, he likes to challenge himself on the rivers and in the mountains. Nature helps prepare him to overcome any obstacle.
